Conscious Alliance

moe_final

We did this poster for Conscious Alliance not too long ago. I saw moe. play The Mile High Music Festival last year and was impressed by a band from a genre that generally doesn’t impress me.  Crushing guitar work. Anyways its got a “summer is around the bend” kind of feeling. Here comes the sun.

It’s exactly one week til the big day. We’ve steered clear of talking politics, endorsing candidates, and all that jazz, mainly because the chance of anyone actually reading it is slim and the chance of it changing anyone’s opinion in this particular election is closer to none. I did, however, stumble across one piece of great / fun design (not that there haven’t been many others over the past few months) that I thought was worth putting up here. Not sure who to give credit to, but it’s got a nice non-partisan vibe. Update: Should have known by looking at it…Yeehaw Industries

Just wrapped up the packaging for Town Mountain’s latest release – Heroes & Heretics. These guys (and gal) are a bluegrass powerhouse out of Asheville, NC. Check em out.

One of our own was recently affected by this terrible disease, and after kicking it in the balls, produced this print to raise awareness and get the old screenprinting muscles limber again. The prints are $25 each, with a portion of the proceeds going to cancer research. Email adutlinger(at)gmail.com to arrange a purchase and support a good cause.

Here’s our latest contribution to Conscious Alliance, a non-profit that trades posters for food at Concerts and Festivals. They are getting ready for a big summer season, making the rounds at all the big festivals and collecting tons of food for those in need. They asked us to help them out with a design for the Wakarusa Festival in Lawrence, Kansas. Last year’s food drive at Wakarusa raised over 3,000 pounds of food. This year’s years lineup includes The Flaming Lips, Emmylou Harris, and a ton of other acts. Get out this summer and see some live music – and if Conscious Alliance is at the show – bring some food to help the less fortunate and get some poster art. It’s a no-brainer.

Gregory Alan Isakov at the Boulder Theater

Thanks to The Denver Westword making the poster for the Gregory Alan Isakov show their ‘Flier of the Week’.

We’re letting these go for $12 each, including shipping, so drop us a lineif you’d like to pick one up.

Library Broadside

a day at the library

Working on getting this broadside of a poem titled ‘A Day at the Library’ wrapped up and printed for the folks at the Front Range Community College Library. 16×20, one-color on French.

scot lefavor

Our pal Scot Lefavor just launched an online store, which will make it a lot easier for non-Colorado folks to get their grubby hands on some of his work. The pieces currently up are a steal, so get there before they’re gone.

gregory isakov boulder theater detail

Our good friend Gregory Alan Isakov is going to be headlining a show at the Boulder Theater with some other great local Denver / Boulder bands on Thursday April 17. These posters are up around town to promote the show and a few should be available for sale at the Boulder Theater the night of the show. Full image of the poster here–> Continue Reading »

O.G. Secret Machines

This is an oldie but goodie. This show made me a Secret Machines fan for life. There are not very many of these in the T2P archive. Two color, 16×20

New Digs

We’ve been on a sort of hiatus for the past five months or so, with most of our poster inventory and all of our printing equipment in storage since White Hills closed down in September. As of last week we have the keys to our new home, where our print shop will be sharing space with Neighbor and a couple of freelance creative folks. It’s going to be nice to have everything under one roof and in a really killer spot (right on Broadway and Pearl in downtown Boulder). We’ll post some pics when we get everything up and running, and we’ll be looking for some new jobs to help pay the rent! Should be up and running by mid February or so, with an online store to follow.

The last time the Secret Machines came through town they played a crazy set at the Fox. The guys brought their own stage – a monster circular structure fully equipped with sychronized lights and whole thing.. It was amazing. Equally amazing was the fact that the Fox was half full. One of those musical experiences that you can’t believe people are missing. Well you can probably tell by now that I happen to be a Secret Machines fan. These guys are the real deal.

Yonder at the Fox

Heres another Yonder poster – This time at the good ol’ Fox Theatre. Went and checked this show out and these guys really tore the Fox down.. Two color on some French Paper..

Happy New Year

Happy New Year from all of us at Table2press. Hope your holiday season is swell. Above is our latest. Yonder at the Fillmore. This design was also made into a shirt with some help from the guys at Anthem..

relief project denver
We just finished a poster for the Relief Project, vol 2., a concert celebrating the release of “The Relief Project Vol. 2: A Colorado Story of Music” an album featuring 18 of Colorado’s best emerging bands and artists. The show is on Thursday, November 29th at The Oriental Theater in Denver, CO. The event will showcase five acts from the record -Braddigan, Flobots, Gregory Alan Isakov, J.E. Borgen, and Katie Herzig. All proceeds from ticket and CD sales will go to the Denver Children’s Home’s residential art and music therapy program.

The Good ‘ole Days

photo_dryingrack.jpg
Ah.. theres nothing like memories of the days before we had a drying rack. Even though our current drying rack is really just kitchen equipment updated with plywood, there were days before this luxury. Days spent putting every poster on the floor of Justin’s basement to dry. And then picking all the posters up for the next color. We walked miles each job. Those were the days.

College Football

osu_florida_4.jpg

Spending a lazy Saturday watching college football, and with Ohio State back at #1, I had a flashback to this poster. Last year we did three limited edition OSU prints for a friend of mine up in Columbus. Things were going smoothly until the National Championship game rolled around. Half the run had shipped in time to make it to the game, and I was actually working on printing the second half and watching the game at the same time. Needless to say, I pulled the plug at halftime, knowing that an OSU / Florida poser featuring OSU players and OSU colors was not making much sense about halfway through the second quarter.

The Roots

roots_11.jpg
Heres an older one – if I remember correctly Andy and Justin printed this one. I went to the show and it was unbelievable. These guy blew the doors off the fox and played for hours. Covers, medleys, you name it. In my humble estimation there is no act that compares in the world of rap. But The Roots transcend stereotypes – comparing this show to all the lame rap shows I have seen would be unfair. I never got to see James Brown – but the energy in the room during this show was what I imagine a J.B. show have been like. No mopey “I’m really too cool to be bothered with this performance because I’m and emotional indy rock guy.” This was pure music for the joy of it. Good times great oldies.

This One’s for Andy

Because he likes this kind of thing. Get well soon my man.

JAM Print number one

Brian and I each designed and printed a poster to be sold to benefit Jeremiah Brooks, a friend who was hit by a s.u.v. going not so slow. We sold the posters in the local skateshops – even mailed some to Freddy out in San Francisco. Lots of folks threw down and bought one. Jeremiah is one of those dudes that everyone was just down to help. And extra special thanks to Chris Sessions who allowed us to use the nice backside ollie at the ditch photo.

There is nothing easy about the backside ollie in this print.

Conscious Alliance are doing something. These guys are on a mission to make things better in the world. Sure, thats what everyone wants, right? But these guys are actually DOING something. Making moves as they say. By trading posters for food at concerts, Conscious Alliance has collected and distributed over 500,000 pounds of relief for those who are in need. And from the looks of things – this is just the beginning.

The beautiful thing for artists and designers is it makes it easy to use our skills to help out. It feels good to help these guys out with designs – it is actually an honor.

The design above is for the Green Festival in Washington D.C.

Dispatch:Zimbabwe

We did a three poster series for the benefit concert Dispatch played at MSG this summer. All the proceeds of the concerts went to benefit Zimbabwe. And all three nights sold out in no time. We produced one poster for each night – together making a triptych.. Two-color, 16×20 – run of 500.


This is one of those things we never got around to posting on our old site. Elephant Magazine is a national publication, based in Boulder, with a focus on Buddhism, yoga and conscious / sustainable living. T2P designed the cover for the Winter ’06 issue…was that really almost a year ago?!? Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, depicted on the cover, was a pioneer of Shambhala Buddhism in the West and lived and worked in Boulder for many years.

T2P on the Denver Egotist

Many thanks to the nice folks over at the Denver Egotist for the write-up and for adding us to their “local talent” section. If you’re looking to stay on top of the happenings in the local design / ad scene, the Egotist is a must visit. Make sure to stop by every day or two or you’ll have a lot of catching up to do, since these guys get around to updating their site way more often than we do.

Monolith Festival 2007

Rob and I made the trek to Red Rocks on Saturday, opting for the day that the Flaming Lips would headline and hoping for a repeat of their epic show from last summer. $50 seemed like a fair price for a ticket, considering the lineup, and in retrospect it was worth the money. Monolith was not without its share of first year kinks, though, mainly with sound problems that plagued the main stage all day. The best stuff we saw was from acts that we stumbled upon at the smaller stages: Bob Log III, White Rabbits and Art Brut all put on great sets.

Unfortunately, Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre spent half an hour bitching out his band and the guy running the soundboard before making it through a complete song, and Spoon, who put on one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time last year at the Boulder Theater was way off, eerily similar to when one of your friends from sea level visits and has way too much to drink before going on to be loud and obnoxious for the rest of the evening. Maybe the bands should have had more time to acclimatize to the mile high city? The Lips were on their A-game as expected, but it would have been hard to top last year’s show–Wayne Coyne even took the time to thank everyone who had been there a year earlier for one of the best show’s in the band’s history.

Shiny New Site

Andy “RandyPants” Dutlinger performing some pre-flight checks and measures. No, that’s not a Medeival cave, it’s our printing studio.

Getting around to updating our old website once every six months just wasn’t cutting it, and besides, everyone’s got a blog these days and we were starting to feel left out. This means that if we get off our collective lazy ass every now and then, posters should show up shortly after they are printed, hopefully around the same time that the show they were made for happens. It also means that we can show more photos of our screenprinting process and talk more about the shows that we’re able to make it to, although we promise not to bore you with too much unnecessary banter.

We’re kicking things off with a post for each of the posters that hadn’t been added to our old site since the last update, so scroll away to see what we’ve been up to. We’ve got a store in the works that will make it way easier to buy prints, but in the meantime if you see something you’d like to hang on your wall or send your grandma for her birthday, send us an email to info(at)table2press.com and we’ll let you know if there are any left and what the details are.

A commemorative, oversized matchbook that we letterpress printed so that someday when we’re old and crusty we can remember all of the trials and tribulations of our screenprinting days.

16×20, 3-color silkscreen. The Noisettes stole the show if you ask me. I was captivated by the lead singer. Man.

A poster design for the annual benefit show thrown by our friends over at Mtn. Sun Pub & Brewery. The ladies from Uncle Earl threw down in classic hootenanny fashion to help raise money for the Boulder County AIDS Project and everyone’s favorite local / independent radio station KGNU.

These guys play some great authentic country-rock, straight out of the plains of west Texas.

We threw a little shin dig at White Hills right around the time we printed our 50th poster. Big Diffy put on a great show and copious amounts of PBR were consumed.

I went to see Del McCoury at the Boulder Theater and these guys were the opening act. They really impressed me. The band are all excellent players and singers and they have a respect for the tradition of bluegrass. Great stage presence and amazing original songs. So I asked them if they needed some “graphical assistance” and this project was born. They are a young band so I crafted a poster that they could use for some time – based on an old broadsides style.. 

Spring Creek just became the only band to ever win the band competition at RockyGrass and Telluride Bluegrass Festival in the same year. Congrats guys!

This is How We Roll

Rob crafted up this poster to promote ‘This is How We Roll,’ a benefit at Installation for Jeremiah Brooks. Several big names, including Lance Mountain and Jeremy Fish contributed artwork on shoes, grip tape and hats to help raise money to cover Jeremiah’s medical expenses.

Flatstock 12

We took a trip down to SXSW in Austin in March to man our booth at Flatstock 12. We brought these posters along to help promote flatstock and to trade with other poster artists. We got drunk and stumbled around Austin. We hung out with Jeff Holland.

16×20, 2-color silkscreen on newsprint

 

You couldn’t ask for nicer people to work with. These guys tour constantly – super hard working musicians and really humble and cool. Worked with Stephen on the new album art and it was a pleasure. He really cared and respected the process and we all know as designers that that is rare.  Oh and this poster is on some super nice Wausau paper that is just saturated with color and perfect when the artwork has to be one color.

We missed this show because we were at Flatstock. Still have yet to see Badly Drawn Boy – hopefully next time. 16×20, 2-color silkscreen

Our third collaboration with our good buddy Josh over at Dovetail.

In addition to posters for each of Dispatch’s three sold out nights at Madison Square Garden, we designed this print for the band’s warm-up / secret show at Webster Hall in NYC.
